Adjusting the nut behind the wheel = you, the driver

Another key to getting great results is modifying your driving style, and monitoring your progress with a fuel economy gauge. Get yourself a ScanGauge or Ultragauge - they make a world of difference from the instant & resettable trip feedback. Also they're a way to measure the impact your mods are having (or not).

Sounds like you're ready for a fun project.

Here is my post on the alternator delete I did on my 97 Paseo (virtually the same car as yours). You might get lucky and the wire colors even match...

Just filled up at 432 miles and put in 10.1 gallons so divided is 42.77 MPG per tank (on ampm gas) that's with the ac and power steering belt off. I don't have a scan guage but u do run my blue tooth obd2 scanner with the torque app for my phone and I love it I'm shure it's not 100% but close enuf for me . With this tank I cut the muffler off it was hanging /drawing because a broken hanger. It not that loud sounds like u have a fartcan on it but I wonder if I will get better MPG with this tank with out a muffler on chevron gas.

I put a 1nzfxe in my mr2 and bumped it up to 37mpg with a 1nzfe computer. 1nzfe=echo motor. Looks like a good fit for any toyota that previously had an A or E engine.

Sounds like a cool project. Do you have a thread here that goes through any of it?

My post count was too low, so now that it's above 5, I can put something up.

I live in cali, land of the opressive smog laws, chances are that I would have a headache if I were to swap in a 1nzfxe into my car.

Ter-power's tag says he's in Perris. Only Perris I see is in California. Gotta keep it stock.

Hey, T-P, maybe you could shop around for a pre-76 Starlet. Those are pretty thin on the ground even in Cali though, so maybe a pre-76 Honda? You'll have more luck there.

Meanwhile, 42+ is damned good, especially for an initial investment south of $600. Start a garage page on your beatermobile.
